The GFT in Rose Street shows films not likely to be seen in modern cinemas, but shows mainstream movies as well. Old favourites such as It's a Wonderful Life are screened here at Christmas time. The theatre has retained its original feel, a nice nostalgic place to visit. There is also a cafe/restaurant which is very popular with movie-goers.

Great choice of flicks, good atmosphere, a Bar :) and on a Wednesday evening they do a film discussion group that is free and focuses on horror movies. What more could one ask for? ;)

I am a regular visitor to the GFT, but my most recent attendance - Friday 23 May - had, as it turned out, a special significance. I was set to travel to the city centre when I became aware of breaking news that the Glasgow School of Art was ablaze. I was well aware of the close proximity of this... More

haha! Yes I know, its a fancier kind of place to see a movie.. you can get a cocktail and bring it in to to the film... you can also get other types of food there... but where is the popcorn? It is the movies after all.

The GFT is frequented by people looking for interesting films, good chats and a refreshment. Most of the films are interesting, while some are excellent, small releases. Throw in regular educational presentations on film matters and you have an excellent facility. Well worth checking.

Fairly small compact cinema...............a good selection of old and new movies to see. Check website for whats showing. In the centre of Glasgow and recently has been refurbished.......we just love a 'movie' night here! Like other theatres it's licensed.

The GFT is fantastic. Unfortunately we don't get out to the cinema very often now (small child!) and I really miss our trips to the GFT. The main cinema is fantastic. I love the whole atmosphere of the place. More than just a cinema.

Great film theatre, lovely café/bar and mostly friendly staff. Nice to feel like a grown up at the cinema occasionally.

Been to GFT twice in the last week, our favourite cinema in Glasgow. A cinema for people who like to watch the film without being surrounded by buckets of popcorn, nachos, etc. Staff are very friendly and the film choice is excellent.

This is one of my favourite film theatres. Went recently just after Christmas to see Cinema Paradiso, even although I have said film on DVD ! Like the new look with the box office at the front. Still great staff, and comfortable seating. Lost a star because whereas it was the only cinema theatre where clients tended not to eat... More
